Cast & Credits
I appreciate so much the plot, there's something very humane with it that the cinematography also blends. I adore the shots of the places that tell the story of Satoru's acquaintances. I appreciate Fukushi Sota here though he's still stiff at some parts I appreciate his improvement & his filmography somehow ranges from mainstream to middle. I like how the conversations & dialogues just flow naturally between the character & their past to present.
I actually smiled at some dialogues between the cat because whenever I observe my cat, I guess cat really loves the sunlight. Also there was a part that Nana is waiting for Satoru & my cat also do that waiting whenever he waits to his favorite chosen one.
The final act, it gives me a thought that when we connect with cats, dogs or any pets that we consider as a family or when you share a special connection with a person considered to be different from the view of others; there will be people who will not understand that connection despite the deepness & history of it but as day goes by the connection is still there & it will remain a special part of your life.
I used to have my first pet cat when I was in my grade school but there was one cat that was very special to us; my dad didn't like it at first, my mom, sister are cat lovers too and I remembered how I grieved when our first cat died, we put him in a box put flowers & buried him at the back of our apartment but our first cat brings joy and happiness in our home that I guess helps me to be more empathetic.
Now, we have this big cat, he's been with us since my junior year in high school so basically it's been 8-9 years since we take care of him and I guess our cat learns to adapt with us since then that he's not a bit of a troublemaker anymore and he brings joy in our home.
Enough of my cat stories, but I recommend this film if you're looking for a simple yet genuine film about people & animals/with their pets that has a good plot & cinematography (there's nothing really big about the cinematography but I appreciate the effort). Also bring tissues, if you're a softie, crybaby like me.
